Every employer is always looking to get the best people for the job. That's why they conduct investigations such as an Employment History Verification to make sure that an applicant is fit for the job. Not only that, but they would also like to make sure if the applicant is a good or a bad asset for the company. An EHV confirms all of this. It checks the applicant's title and tenure. It also looks into personal data such as the reason why you left your previous job and your eligibility for rehire. During this process, any potential problems and past issues may be revealed.
After the investigation, the results will then be compiled into an Employment History Verification report. The information provided by this report will confirm if whether or not the applicant has the experience and work history to qualify for the job. It also provides a chance for previous employers to share their professional and unbiased views of the applicant as their past employee.
An Employment History Verification is also a good test to see if an applicant is honest; or is just making fraudulent claims to get the job. Itís a great way to spot fake resumes, fake degrees, false references, and even fake identities. Through an EHV, employers can avoid hiring a toxic person. Even if past employers will only disclose minimal information, itís still worth the time since every small bit of information will build up into a more concrete jurisdiction on the applicant. It will also serve as a building defense against negligent hiring claims.
